MARKET REPORT – Melbourne Sale M33

13/02/2020

In a good selection of better type wools, mainly from Tasmania , the market continued to perform well with best style and spinners wool in 16.5 micron and finer 20-30ac dearer with good support from NEW, Schneider and Loro Piana. Good types/AM’s in 17.0-19.0 microns were 10/20ac dearer.
Lower CH types continued to struggle.
The 31.6% passed in rate is a reflection of the price drop in the lower types/Nkts and in some cases the unrealistic price expectations by some Growers.

Merino skirtings finer than 17.5mic and less than 3% attracted strong competition from Chinese indent buyers to close 20/30ac dearer .18.0 to 19.5mic pcs/bls with less than 4% vm closed generally unchanged. Poorer style and higher VM skirtings closed 10/15ac cheaper with less competition from the topmakers.

Prems/Lambs in the 42-44HM range closed 10/15ac cheaper in the 17.5 to 19.0mic range in a small selection today. 46-56HM types closed 15/20ac cheaper in the 17.5 to 19.5mic range with odd CM/NM lots 10/15ac cheaper as only limited competition from the china buyers.
